it's a shawl after all, y'all ~ posted by Melissa
Dozer, Jason and I headed down to Mukilteo Lighthouse Beach this morning and hung out with the pigeons and a few people that were brave enough to venture out in the very chilly, rainy weather.
We were on a mission to get some photos of my new shawl ;) ~ yup, I'm not sure it will ever grace my table top. I'm enamored.
I'm so glad I did take out one chart D section ~ it did make all the difference in my feeling comfortable wearing it.
And I'm glad I decided to add beads to the edging ~ I can't describe how that little bit of extra weight around the outer edge makes it lie just a little bit better.
I love my new shawl ~ you can see loads more photos here if you'd like. Those of you that know me also know that I always get carried away with pictures when I really, truly love a finished knit. Thanks everyone for knitting along with us this year. I sure enjoyed all the new company and eagerly await the other 8 or so finished shawls as they appear! Can't wait to see them all! ~ Melissa
